Sedona Boondocking

Loy Butte Road is the hot spot to boondock this season. The views are spectacular and its proximity to Sedona and Cottonwood make it a perfect basecamp.

Every morning hot air balloons filled with tourists drift by, though as long as we’ve been here, they’ve kept their distance.

All this beauty comes at a small price. Now that we’ve experienced both the red mud and the red dust, we’d recommend the dust. It’s totally worth daily vacuuming.

      The dirt is really quite manageable as long as it isn’t raining, it just looks bad in that photo of the steps!

    When you left your airstream to run into town, did you feel safe leaving it?
